Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for Owner Builder Course
RPL is the acknowledgement of skills and knowledge obtained through learning achieved outside the formal education and training system and includes work and life experience including paid and volunteer work and skills attained in leisure activities. RPL recognises any prior knowledge and experience and measures it against the qualification in which participants are enrolled. The individual may not need to complete all of a training program if he or she already possesses some of the competencies taught in the program. RPL is an evidence based process, and therefore if you apply for RPL you will be required to submit evidence of your current competence in the units your are applying for.

 

 Exemption.

There are alternative qualifications that are accepted by the Office of Fair Trading for the purposes of obtaining an Owner Builder Permit. As per the Fair Trading guidelines, the qualifications below are approved for the purpose of meeting the educational requirements for an owner-builder permit are:

  • Currently hold or have ever held any of the approved qualifications for a general building work licence or qualified supervisor certificate
  • Currently hold or have ever held a NSW general building work contractor licence that is not limited in the scope of work.
  • Currently hold or have ever held a NSW trade category of building licence or certificate (for proposed work in that trade only)
  • Currently hold or have ever held a NSW qualified supervisor certificate in the category of general building work that is not limited in the scope of work.
  • Accreditation as an accredited building.
  • Certifier employment as a council building inspector/surveyor/consultant.  
In order to have any of the above recognised (and therefore be exempt from participating in the Owner Builder Course) participants should provide all relevant documentation with permit application and fee to their nearest Fair Trading Centre.

Direct Credit.

AAA Training Specialist will recognise all AQTF Statements of Attainments and Certificates issued by other Registered Training Organisations. Any participant that can provide an original or certified true copy of a Statement of Attainment for one or more units of competence contained within the Course in Owner Builder Compliance from an RTO will have that recognised immediately and not need to compete that unit of competence through AAA Training. Certificates that have no standing under the AQF however (such as those previously provided for Owner Builder Courses that were non-accredited courses) cannot be accepted for direct credit; however they may be considered as a form of evidence for RPL.

AAA Training Specialist advises however that in cases where a module integrates more than one unit of competence, and assessment tasks are mandated by Fair Trading, it may not be possible to exempt participants form parts of a module if they have direct credit for only one unit.
